"Do You Know Who I Am"

Prior to the Keri Rodrigues story breaking in the Herald News, I was listening to Mike "Hurricane" Herren on WSAR recount his attempt at investigative reporting. He told his listeners that he went to the Regatta the day before to investigate the shooting that occurred early Saturday morning. He indicated that the Regatta is a dump, that the management is horrible, and the owner was uncooperative with Hurricane.

Manny, the even-keeled sounding owner of Tony's Shipwreck (the restaurant at the Regatta) called into the show to respectfully defend the Regatta and to address Herren's confrontational behavior towards the Regatta owner. According to Manny, Herren and the Regatta owner exchanged heated words and Herren said, "Do you know who I am?"

Fast forward to the Herald News article about Keri Rodrigues later that night: regarding Mike Herren -“He kept asking me if I knew who he was, and he was screaming at me,” said Rodrigues.

So to all of you out there who might be asked by Mike Herren if you know who he is (because apparently that is his modus operandi)...be prepared and memorize the picture immediately below so you can stroke his ego and avoid a fight by answering correctly.

I want to make this very clear and I want all of you who post and blog to consider what I have to say.

As a long time listener of WSAR and former sponsor (notice I said former, not present or future), I am appalled and saddened that a once respectable broadcast outlet has become such a joke. This was a station that had deep roots in the community and used its facilities to do good things. Thank God Hec is still there to provide some stability. If you think he’s too old fashioned, you may be right. At least he offers the last shred of dignity the station has. Keri may have exaggerated about what happened to her, but clearly she was mistreated. Herren apparently used his swagger, ego and links to the owners to shove people around, perhaps literally.

They got rid of Moran to build the franchise around Keri. She flamed out so now they’re building the franchise around Hurricane. UNDOUBTEDLY, he will screw up, p*** off the wrong person, throw a punch at someone, and he’ll flame out too. This whole thing is sad. You may find it entertaining, but it’s sad. Very sad. The community is the real loser. Hopefully, the Karams will cut their losses, make money at their other business, and drop the one business venture they have dabbled it too long.

This is hilarious! I bet that Herren is thinking "Like I don't get this all the time, come on.. please.. find somethin new..."

We all knew something like this would happen with Keri. She always took her attitude out on the WSAR listeners with her nasty comments. She got rid of a great host like Mike Moran and made Hec's life miserable. I hope this issue is out of the news soon. It is a matter between the parties directly involved.

The only indicator I had that "something like this would happen to Keri" was the fact that she was working with, and for, crazy people.

I would think that the moment the phrase "Do you know who I am" comes out of your mouth your time has passed.........

Keri didn't "get rid of a great host like Mike Moran." Her entire MCAD complaint is available on some blogs and I've read it, it makes it clear that the move was a decision by Bobby Karam. If you knew anything at all about local politics you would know that Bobby Karam has been trying to dump Mike Moran for years because he was a little too kind to some of the politicians that weren't in Bob Karam's pocket and as Moran's ratings went down it gave Bobby more justification and cover to hide behind. Keri also made the point in the newspaper, why would she want to get a baby who is not yet 1 up every morning at 3:30 a.m. and have to find a babysitter at that early hour? Nope, if you all are going to keep playing the blame the victim card in an attempt to defend Karam and Herren you are going to have to do a heck of a lot better with your spin.

Herren is still blogging about himself on the Herald. Somebody should show him how to operate the caps key.

How low do you have to go to be more pathetic than a washed-up, has-been, (and gleefully hyphenated!) ex-high-school jock? Be one of the clings-ons who look up to him!

Word is that Rick Olivera is taking some of Kerri's time.

He was on this morning and I heard he has the job if he wants it.
He said he will be there all week.


Do you think he will get threatened by Mike Herren?

when will you to elsewhere? Time to take an English class, it is a free country but you should learn the language.

To Sept. 1 at 8:42... its a free country or how about it's a free country or it is a free country which would actually be correct?

Does Keri realize that her Radio career is over? Herren and Rodriquez. Soon to be two has beens that never were. They deserve each other.

Why is Keri's radio career over? Do you have some inside information you would like to share or are you just bullshitting? Is she looking for jobs in radio and can't find one? Please fill me in on the details of her job search, I'd like to know, I was a listener and enjoyed her show, I hope she is doing well.

maybe Keri is moving into another form of media that will make them
all has beens.

You can all rest easy, I heard that Keri has a nice new job, not in radio but making tons more money and it is far away from Fall River, which is probably a good thing according to her haters. I for one miss her and find no reason to listen to WSAR any longer.

It is good to know that Keri has landed on her feet and is gainfully employed. As a fellow single mom I know how scary it can be when finances are an issue. She must be cursing the day she agreed to her former position at WSAR, how could she have known that her life would almost be ruined by some sociopath that is out of control. I wish her well.
